Chocolate Waffles

Makes about 10 


  • 225g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa butter
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 50g caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 250ml whole milk
  • 125ml vegetable oil, plus a little extra for cooking
  • 3 egg whites
  • 200g dark chocolate, melted, to serve


  • Electric hand mixer
  • Waffle iron


  • To make the batter for the waffles, sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the sugar and salt.
  • Mix the egg yolks with the milk in a separate bowl, then add the oil and 125ml of water.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the liquid, whisking all the time, until you have a smooth batter.
  • In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with an electric hand mixer until they form soft peaks.
  • Use a metal spoon to fold in one third of the whisked egg white into the batter, then gently fold in the rest.
  • Pre-heat the waffle iron.
  • Add a tiny amount of oil to the iron and spoon in the batter.
  • Close the lid and cook for 1-2 minutes or until just set.
  • Lift out the cooked waffle and keep it warm in a low oven while you repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve the waffles drizzled or brushed with the melted chocolate.
